  • 3. About the City
    The largest city in Minnesota, Minneapolis is the seat of Hennepin County and the sister city of Saint Paul, with which it forms the 15-county Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan statistical area. The city encompasses within its boundaries 16 lakes (said to have been formed by Paul Bunyan's footprints) and is noted for its natural beauty and parklands. First a milling and lumbering center, Minneapolis today has one of the largest concentrations of high-technology firms in the nation.
  • 4. History
    Dakota Sioux were the region's sole residents until French explorers arrived around 1680. The United States Government pressed the Mdewakanton band of the Dakota to sell their land, allowing people arriving from the east to settle there.
    The St. Anthony Falls provided the source of power for lumber and flour milling, the two industries that fueled the city's rapid growth. Soldiers built the first flour mill in 1823 and the first commercial sawmill was in operation in 1841. Attracting settlers from New England, particularly lumbermen from Maine, the rich land was ready for settlement.
  • 5. Economy
    The economy of Minneapolis is one of the primary reasons this city is so attractive to many people seeking to relocate.
    Next to other cities of comparable size and population, the education rate and median household income is higher, the unemployment rate is lower, and housing is much more affordable.
    The Twin Cities combine to contribute nearly two-thirds of Minnesota’s gross state product, which makes it an incredibly lucrative area to build a career in almost any profession. 
  • 6. Real Estate
    The real estate market in Minneapolis has never been so accommodating to potential buyers. Thousands of homes are available across the city, and in the current buyer’s market, it is an excellent time to invest in property. 
    The city of Minneapolis is divided into 11 communities, and each community is divided into small neighborhoods, a total of 81 neighborhoods in Minneapolis.
  • 7. Calhoun-Isles
    Calhoun-Isles is an upscale, affluent area of Minneapolis, southwest of Downtown. This community contains the Uptown district.
    Most of Minneapolis's nightlife, the upscale shops, and the restaurants to be seen in, are here. Three of the city's lakes, Lake Calhoun, Lake of the Isles, and Cedar Lake are in this community.
    The nine neighborhoods in Calhoun-Isles are,BrynMawr, CARAG, Cedar-Isles-Dean, East Calhoun/ECCO, East Isles, Kenwood, Lowry Hill, Lowry Hill East, and West Calhoun.
